May 25, 2023 | Technology & Media

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “­­5G in Aviation Market Report by Communication Infrastructure (Small Cell, Distributed Antenna System (DAS), Radio Access Network (RAN)), Technology (Enhanced Mobile Broadband Segment (EMBB), Massive Machine Type Communication (MMTC), Ultra-Reliable Low-Latency Communication (URLLC), Fixed Wireless Access (FWA)), Connectivity Type (Ground-to-Ground Communication, Air-to-Ground Communication), End Use (Airport, Aircraft), and Region 2024-2032,” the global 5G in aviation market size reached US$ 1.1 Billion in 2023. 5G in aviation refers to implementing and utilizing fifth-generation (5G) wireless technology in the aviation industry. 5G is the latest generation of wireless networks that offer significantly faster data speeds, lower latency, increased capacity, and enhanced connectivity compared to its predecessors. In the aviation sector, 5G has the potential to revolutionize various aspects of operations, including providing reliable and high-speed wireless connectivity and enabling real-time data transmission and communication between aircraft and ground-based systems. This can facilitate advanced air traffic management systems, enabling more precise and efficient aircraft navigation and communication. Besides this, it can enhance in-flight passenger experiences by providing faster and more stable onboard Wi-Fi services, allowing passengers to stream high-quality content, access cloud-based applications, and stay connected during their flights.

Global 5G in Aviation Market Trends:

The widespread adoption of 5G technology to ensure seamless wireless connectivity between ground control rooms and flight crew, enhancing safety and providing a user-friendly experience represent the key factor driving the market growth. Moreover, the bolstering growth of the aviation industry and the expanding employment of 5G technology across medium and small-sized airports to optimize operations, minimize downtime, and reduce intervention in ground support equipment are propelling the market forward. In addition to this, the growing need to enhance connectivity for contactless solutions throughout various stages of air travel, including pre-flight, in-flight, and post-flight operations, streamline processes, and improve passenger experiences is acting as a significant growth-inducing factor. Concurrent with this, the increasing demand for better in-flight connectivity to allow video streaming, online interactions, and real-time flight updates is presenting remunerative growth opportunities for the market. Furthermore, the introduction of 5G-connected artificial intelligence (AI) systems that assist passengers in locating their bags by recognizing unique characteristics of bags and matching them to the correct passenger is strengthening the market growth. Besides this, ongoing technological advancements in the telecommunications sector, enabling high-speed networks and multi-device access, are creating a favorable outlook for the market. Looking forward, the market value is projected to reach US$ 25.5 Billion by 2032, expanding at a CAGR of 41.14% during 2024-2032.
